The past few months customers flooded every Popeyes waiting to get a bite of their brand new Chicken Sandwiches. The waiting line took hours, and even a life.

According to CNN, a man pulled up to a Popeyes in Maryland and proceeded to cut people in line. Because losers never finish first, he was confronted by a man who was in that line.

The identified victim was a man named Kevin Davis, who was confronted by an unidentified suspect who he had cut in line. After nearly 15 seconds into the confrontation, he was stabbed reportedly multiple times. He was pronounced dead on arrival.

A man was stabbed while waiting in line at Popeyes.

Popeyes has released a statement regarding this incident.

“We do not yet know whether this was the result of a dispute over one of our products or something unrelated, but there is no reason for someone to lose their life on a Monday night in a parking lot.”

Secondary College Counselor Mr. Chris has described this incident as “ridiculously stupid,” seeing as this was over a sandwich. Secondary English Teacher,Ms. Khadija, has described this tragedy as horrifying. Both can agree that it was a dark day for Popeyes.

Looking past this incident, many people in the Lotus community have tried the chicken sandwich, including a couple of staff members, juniors, and seniors. 

Ms. Khadija, Mr. Chris, and a Junior attending Lotus have all spoken and touched on their thoughts about the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich. Their thoughts can be summed up into one statement, that was worded nearly the same amongst all three:

“The sandwich was good, but I think Chick-Fil-a has a better sandwich. It’s so overhyped.”

However, all three do agree that it was indeed a good sandwich.
